Why Write

I'm going to start writing a blog post once a day.

A warning upfront: Most of these posts will make for poor reading. I want to write them fast and without much concern about how they will be to read. They should take no more than 15-30 minutes per post.

So why am I doing this?

Creating Without Fear

When I do something, I'm often worried about whether it will be good enough. As a result, I do things slowly. Or I leave things unfinished.

I see writing as a great practice to change this. There is no way that I'll write something decent consistently. I'll need to put mediocre posts out over and over again and everybody can read them.

I expect that this will train me to worry less and create with more ease. And I expect that this will carry over to areas other than writing.


The second reason is that it sounds fun. I've been reading Fred Wilson's blog for many years and always loved the idea of doing something similar. It should be a great outlet for creativity.

And there my first post ends. A first step taken.
